    There is an 80A full poly indestructible guibo in the works. We are waiting on patents. Yes, its that serious.
    I know the answer is likely no but I have to ask - any ETA on the guibo? I would love to get another year out the driveshaft before going to a 9".

    How long is the moonlighting period for the vibes to stop or go away when using the insert?

    It's giubo! Not guibo :P lol
    THe more improvements on the drivetrain I can get, the better. Keep us informed on what you are making!
    I'm almost done installing every single revshift product they make for my V. The GF 9" rear is pretty nice but still has a clunk, although not anywhere near as bad as the stock diff.
    We will see how the GIUBO works with the 9" IRS and 2 piece driveshaft (the current billet one)

    Re: Revshift Trans Mount Insert ?

    I have installed new motor mounts,rear diff. bushing,trans insert and finally shifter bushings. It seemed with each replacement the shifting was better but more cabin noise and vibration each time. I was getting some serious shifter rattle and gear noise so I took out the Revshift insert the other day. I trimmed down the high spots on the top and bottom and stuck it back in there, maybe 3/8" total material trimmed off. I also took maybe an 1/8" of the sides were it touches the OEM rubber. I was basically wanting some height from the insert but not wanting it to be crammed in there. I wanted to give the OEM mount some room to move around under load if needed. So far it seems to be my fix, gears shift smooth and just a hint of gear noise under heavy acceleration. Under normal driving, no gear noise so far. I also was concerned about maybe it slipping out, after several hours of driving it hasn't moved.

    Re: Revshift Trans Mount Insert ?

    Installed the Revshift trans mount over the weekend. So far so good, tad bit tighter between shifts. I have a B&M shifter which is already a bit noisy but not bad. Now under acceleration it's much louder in 1st & 2nd. Not very happy about it. May look into PISNUOFF's shifter next.

    I felt the same way. It helped the shifts, but was louder.

    Creative Steel complete replacement mount was the best of both worlds for me.

    Re: Revshift Trans Mount Insert ?

    How does that one help with the lateral movement of the tranny on turning if just the bottom of the mount is reinforced. That has been another concern of mine with just the insert. If the factory rubber is that squished then there will be some rolling around wouldn't there?

    Re: Revshift Trans Mount Insert ?

    The more I drive around with the Revshift trans mount, the more the noise is bothering me. It's only been a few days but frankly the stock mount kept things quiet in the cabin. Seems like you need to find the right combinations of mounts to get happy results. I'll give it a few more weeks and see if things change, otherwise I'm removing mine.

    I have the latest and greatest CS mount and all has been well. Made some modifications of my own to my hurst shifter to get the noise level down. I also got a revshift insert that I will try when I swap the clutch simply just for a comparison. I have had not a single issue with my Cs mount.

    In fact I think CS should hook me up a diff block just so I can try it out haha.

    I don't care about past comparison threads but in my car with new CS motor mounts and tranny mount. My car is solid and noise free.

    Remember that every cars geometry is a little different. What works for one may not work for another. Take that for what it is worth.

    ----------

    I might add that I have not tried a single revshift product and that's why I got the insert. To try.

    I look forward to getting some other bushings from either company. My initial purchase decision will be based on general reviews and hardness of what I'm looking for. Also I appreciate great customer service.

    I look forward to further enhancing my v for me . Whether it be company A or company B. Or maybe C?

    This about sums it up right here! I have parts from both companies, just cant find the right combo yet. Frustrating.
